Q

Dear Mr. Cornwell - I have just read your FAQ and would like you to know that I have read all of your series, and agree strongly with you that the beat was the Arthur series. While I enjoy the others, the Arthur trilogy was just magical - no pun intended. Thank you. Donald McCall

Just finished reading Sharpe's Havoc. I throughly enjoyed the book. What a page turner. Looking forward to finding more of the collection to read. Sir, you keep me up reading and I went to bed late. Thank you. John Armstrong

Bernard - glad to have found your website. I have just finished reading Winter King for the second time and am enjoying it even more the second time around. I believe that you are the best and most convincing teller of battle narrative currently writing. I studied Early medieval History at university and have been fascinated by Arthur and post- Roman Britain since childhood. I think your Arthur series is the closest to what may have actually happened that I have read, and they are also extremely interesting, exciting and thought-provoking books. Thank you for your hard work and creativity. You comment in your FAQ section that you would like to write more Arthur-like material - as I'm sure you are aware the 'Dark Ages' (I personally dislike the term) are full of superb sources for your stories. Please contact me if you would like to discuss working together on some ideas - I would be honoured. In any case, the best of luck with all your projects and many thanks for the excellent novels (I have also recently enjoyed the conclusion of the Grail Quest series) so far. Andrew

Thanks very much for your message Andrew.

Dear Mr. Cornwell, I finished the Sharpe series and it's as if I had to say goodbye to good friends. The series is really amazing. I'm about to start your Author books next but I wanted to respectfully request that you include "Sweet" William to your next Sharpe book if it's not already too late. With best regards, Mike Weksler

Too late for Sharpe's Escape. but I'll bear him in mind for whatever follows - but that won't be written till next year.

Mr. Cornwell, I have been a fan of your work since 1982. My first book was Sharpe's Eagle. Your work inspired me as a history teacher and continues to impress me as I continue learning more history. The love of history has lead me to the hobby of painting military miniatures. I don't know if you are aware of a few miniatures available on your Richard Sharpe character. It is amazing how your work has had an effect on many people regardless of their profession. Your Sharpe titles are by far my favorites. The title Sharpe's Enemy is my favorite in the Sharpe series. I continue to enjoy Sharpe with each new title. I anxiously await the upcoming Sharpe's Escape release. I have re-read all the Sharpe titles time and again. I also have read Redcoat. It was an excellent book and one that I had hoped would lead to other stories on the Revolutionary War. The Starbuck Chronicles are also much liked as the American War Between the States is my favorite period of history. I do hope you continue them. Recently, I read the Quest of the Grail. The books really increased my interest in the period of the Hundred Years War. I must admit you really are an artist in painting the picture as well as telling a darn good story. I was disappointed to learn that the series would cover 3 books as I really got hooked on the character, Thomas of Hookton. I am planning to try the Arthurian Legend series and Stonehenge next. Each character comes to life in your work regardless of the historical era. All in all, I praise your work as it is both enjoyable reading and satisfies my continuing interest of history. I can only add that I look forward with great anticipation to more titles from your hand. Whether it is the Starbuck Chronicles, a Richard Sharpe title, or a new series& your work continues to hold my interest and entertain and educate me. Each title immerses me in history, allows me to both gain knowledge of a particular era, period and takes me on a pleasant journey through the pages of time. Keep up the good work and I look forward to your next release... Terry Martin
